Wow, that emoticon looks really weird in the title font. Like it has a half reverse mustache or something.
Anyway, yes, I am going on an adventure! One that has a name: World Youth Day 2016.
For those who are unfamiliar with World Youth Day, it's a gathering of Catholic youth every few years and the pope (right now, Pope Francis) comes to whatever country World Youth Day is in and celebrates the Mass in a field with millions of youth there, and talks to the youth. There's also other catechetical stuff going on, but I think the part with the pope is the awesomest.
This WYD is in Krakow, Poland, and some of my group is going on a pre-trip to Ireland, which means that I leave on July 17 and travel around Ireland for a week, then go to Poland and travel around for a week and SEE POPE FRANCIS. How cool is that???
This also means that since I will technically be on pilgrimage, I can't bring technology with me. Which means…I can't blog for two weeks.
I'm kind of disappointed about that right now but I'm sure the disappointment will vanish when the actual trip happens and I'm gallavanting about Ireland and Poland with other youth and going to all kinds of cool pilgrimage sites. And you'll be getting a nice break from my blog posts, so it's a win-win! ;)
Please pray for me. I'll be praying for you. Farewell!
